The Global Alliance of Medical Excellence (GAME) is a strategic international network of medical schools that share a common interest in promoting innovative medical education and undertaking impactful research​.


GAME-TEI Summer Camp

As one of the international collaboration projects under the umbrella of the GAME (Global Alliance of Medical Excellence), TEI (Transnational Educational Initiative) aims at educational exchanges and medical education research including undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. Every year, the TEI group conducts a TEI student summer camp as a student educational exchange programme. The overall goals of the TEI student summer camp are to help you:

  1. Broaden your perspectives and increase understanding of different cultures;
  2. Gain valuable experience for future roles in patient care and research;
  3. Create a network of motivated medical students and teachers 


  • Artificial intelligence in Medicine and medical Education: Hype or Hope?


  • Monday, 20 July 2020 to Wednesday, 22 July 2020

The pre-programme will run from Monday 8th June to Friday 17th July and will consist of a series of online lectures and interactive sessions which cover the principles of medical AI, ethical and policy considerations and include guest lectures from GAME-TEI Professors. For the pre-programme, students will participate in one of two streams, the “Foundations of medical AI” stream or the “Advanced medical AI” stream. The foundation stream is more suitable for students who intend to occasionally use medical AI for diagnosis and treatment within the clinical setting. The advanced stream is more suitable for students who intend to lead medical AI research or industry projects.

16  students from member universities of GAME (including 2 CUHK students) joined the first Transnational Educational Initiative (TEI) summer camp hosted by Nagoya University in the summer of 2019. The theme of this summer camp was “Medical Professionalism in Disaster Conditions”. Through the sharing of experienced physicians who worked in the field during past disaster, our students learned about disaster cycle which consists of providing medically related disaster preparations, planning, response and recovery leadership. They also reflected on critical issues of medical professionalism in disaster conditions and further recognized their missions as physicians.
